RESTORING BALANCE AND HARMONY
To The Enviroment We Live In … One Hive at a Time.
Welcome to Backyard Bees
Every good deed we do helps restore balance and harmony to the environment we live in.
We strive to instill respect for the natural balance of Earth’s cycles by rescuing and relocating unwanted honeybee hives and conducting educational workshops and garden tours for children of all ages. Honey processing and creating beeswax products all take place in our backyard honey house and mini organic farm.
Even to the smallest creatures, we should have care and respect. They are here to help us, not hurt us.
Save the Bees!
